Volatility Ticking UpSep 2, 2021
Implied volatility for short-term options is beginning to increase again, which means the cost of buying these options is going up too. Realized volatility for ETH is also starting to increase after a flat August.
In our ETH market report, we noted that options seemed cheap and could be a capital efficient (but risky) way for investors to gain exposure to ETH. If ETH continues to trend upwards, implied volatility, and thus options premiums, will continue increasing too.
